    I too am sick of all these Christmas movies. Thats not why I watch and enjoy the regular ion shows. Christmas shows and movies are on every single channel this time of year. Adults like me want shows with subatance, not a bunch of cartoons and teenage tear jerkers.

      Well it’s just four weekends a year plus Christmas Eve. And the people obviously enjoy watching them since we get me ones each year plus the old favorites come back.

    It’s sad they’re only showing “Christmas Mail” once. It’s the best one!

        I watched MY SANTA TWICE and I never do that and any of the Christmas movies they had with Dogs in them were great too.For some reason you can’t beat a new puppy at Christmas.

    Hello
    I am looking forward to Christmas Movies on ION. I do not have cable TV and watch ION over the air, with an antenna.

    Can you please provide a schedule of 2019 Christmas Movies for ION tv.

    Thank You Very Much.

      Nancy I realize it’s been two years, but I just discovered the same song, “Just One Dance”, as the final song in “A Royal Christmas Ball”. That makes four movies. (This was the “carriage ride song” that you mentioned elsewhere on this page.)

    Why, oh why, is there no Golden Christmas movie 4? If you see a nother plea from me for this, I didn’t see it show up here, so writing this. I think, the older couple could be in it, with the man as a professor, as stated in 2, and the woman, retired and happy. The young girl could be all grown up, and the story could revolve around her. Possibly, a love story between her and another student at the college, the same one the professor is at. That way, he can give sage advice, when needed.

    Ok? So, now, movie people, write this darn thing! We need a 4!

    Love your Christmas movies on ION. However, every time I record your movies, the last 30-60 seconds are cut off so I miss the closing signoff of each movie. I watched ‘A CHRISTMAS IN ROYAL FASHION’ and when the closing captions were shown at the bottom of the screen as to what became of the leading characters in this movie, my DVR stopped recording because the cable TV guide showed your movie ending at 11 pm on December 16,2018. Apparently, it should have shown 11:01pm on the guide. Can anyone tell me what happened to the leading characters in this movie. I got as far as the little girl Amy before the DVR stopped recording

      Amy “grew up to be a very successful young doctor . . .. and supervisor of the Edgemoor Children’s Health Foundation.”
      Kristin and Patrick “found the true meaning of love . . . .and went on to plan their new life together . . . becoming dual citizens of Edgemoor and the United States. They spend their time promoting charitable fashion events. . . . . Living happily ever after.” (Hopefully that includes actually getting married.)

      As for the timing – yes, Ion formats the movies so that the end of one runs right up to the beginning of the next. Best bet is just to have the DVR record an extra one minute at the end – all the DVRs I’ve seen have a setting for that.
